just arrived air force one and we told by the aides he is pleased with what first lady michelle obama did last night. they are very disappointed in the campaign and in the white house, that they have to move the venue from the outdoor stadium, holding 65,000 to about 20,000 at the time-warner center. a local meteorologist tweeted it could be clear on thursday, the republican national convention suggested maybe it was a lack of enthusiasm they could not fill the stadium. that's what really led the democrats, not the weather concerns, to move the venue. i spoke to the deputy campaign manager, and she said that is nonsense. >> 65,000 people that were scheduled to come tomorrow night probably disagree with that and are pretty disappointed they cannot come to see the president. we are disappointed, too. but the chance of severe weather, the chance of putting the people at risk was too high and we could not risk it. >>reporter: officials tell us they had a waiting list beyond the 65,000 people of up to 19,000 or 20,000 that wanted to get in the stadium. they say they would have filled it an

: hi. i watched the speeches last night. i was pretty disgusted about it, how michelle obama was talking about her husband was going to help everybody, we are going to give money for people to go to school. it just seems like everybody is just waiting for handouts from them. , that's great that we want to help everybody, but the reality is our country is almost bankrupt. we are already. where are they going to get all this money to hand out to everybody? guest: well, the issue of the economy and government spending is a difficult one. that is one of the major dividers between the two campaigns. who -- where does the investment and the growth need to come from? does it come from the bottom up or the top down? that is a basic thing that voters are going to have to decide. but i think you also tapped into sentiments that are out there. a lot of people are tired of hearing more of what they may perceive as the same. i think that is part of the enthusiasm gap. people have forgotten that the government is for the people and that we ultimately have a choice. i always told my student
tonight. i've got to you if tonight is essentially afterglow from michelle obama's speech or is there a separate second night agenda for the democrats here leading up to the bill clinton speech? >> rachel, it looked for awhile there there were two versions of the democratic party. there was the clinton version and the barack obama version. that was a wrong perception a lot of us had. there are, in fact, two complimentary parts to the democratic party. the clinton part and the obama part. when they are together, it is a robust political party. when they are separated by division or bad feeling, they are not a strong political party. the clinton case has to come back for obama to win. it looks like it's coming back starting tonight. >> chris, are there any substantive differences between those two parts of the party you're talking about? any differences between clinton and obama that either need to be resolved or glossed over in order to make this sort of remarriage tonight work for the president? >> i don't know if it comes down to policy, but it certainly comes down to pol
